First started upon the initiative of Professor Hartmut Keil, the Leipzig Fulbright Lecture Series has become an established institution at the University and in the region for German-American dialog and enrichment of understanding about the many facets of American life. Already in its seventh year, the FLS will have as its theme in 2007, “Contesting the Public Space in American Society”. Leading scholars from all corners of the United States currently in Europe will be coming to Leipzig to share their expertise about the multifaceted aspects of American public life and civil society, including social movements, civil rights, environmental justice, and election laws. These scholars are in Germany as guests of the Fulbright Scholars Program, one of the world’s most prestigious academic exchange programs.

All events are free and open to the public.
